    Actually that's the title of my resume these days. But it's not quite the same thing. A great deal of what I write and edit is for software developers and support staff. It's not meant to be understood by non-technical people. It's full of jargon, operational procedures, data models and blocks of SQL.

    I also define, explain or replace this stuff with vernacular English in project plans, user guides and other documents for managers and end users, but not all technical writers do that.

    That's a title you earn. I think it would be presumptuous to call yourself that. Joseph Campbell was the popularizer of Jung's work on archetypes because he elucidated it so articulately, so charmingly, and with such fascinating illustrations, that he got his own series on PBS. The other people who tried to do it accomplished some good work and were studied by university students, but they did not popularize Jung.

    It depends on the position and the employer you're applying to. Some companies want ego and some jobs are better done with a bit of it. If it's a government job then by all means leave out the ego.

    Liaison.

    That's what I call the lady who works between me and the end users. (And I totally appreciate the job she does, seriously! A good liaison makes my life much simpler.)
